Good to know. I have done over 30 conversions and had not seen that error before.

FWIW there is a different procedure if you have a Bosch 5.3 ABS

this is my FIRST B5.5 swap and i feel like every pitfall that existed i fell into... is the 5.3 procedure wildly divergent from the 5.7?

The 5.7 ABS you have to log in like you did and change the ABS code

The 5.3 ABS is just a straight soft code change with no log in required. However there is no corresponding soft coding for a FWD 5 speed. You have to code it as a 6 speed and IIRC AWD. Really don't know why it calls out a 6 speed specifically
